Anybody know who has them online? I'm just looking for the spanner for adjusting shock spring tension. For some reason I can't find one searching Google? Thanks!

I&#39;m pretty sure yamaha sells them for 10 dollars.

insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results...

Two of our dealers sold us the wrong ones that simply slip off and don&#39;t work. I simply used a big pair of expandable pliers. Works great and is very fast.

Cool, thanks for the replies. Yeah, a big pair of channel-locks will work but I don&#39;t want to bugger it all up over being too cheap to spend $10 for the tool! I usually manage ok with the right tool for the right job, but as soon as I have to improvise, I can feel the skin coming off the knuckles already!

Be sure to get the correct size. I never could find the correct size spanner wrench so I ended up using large channel locks.

I agree. Even the ones that Yamaha said would work for the Grizzly didn&#39;t. They all simply slipped off. I don&#39;t think you will find the correct spanner.

The spanner wench that Yamaha sells is junk. I even followed my friends suggestion and bought two of them and welded them together. That was a little better but still would slip off all the time. I finally asked my Yamaha Mechanic what he uses...He said he places a rag over the shock to keep from scratching it up and then uses "Channel Lock" pliers.

It really is the easiest way . No more busted knuckles!!!
